Nigel Short has been competing at the top level for 5 decades and counting. During this time, he’s beaten every World Champion from Karpov to Carlsen, and become the only Englishman to have challenged for the title, taking on Kasparov in their controversial 1993 match.

His razor-sharp, creative tactical ability has been a major factor in his success. In his new Master Method course, “The Short Way To Mastering Tactics”, GM Nigel Short challenges students to find the strongest moves and explains the mechanics of tactical combinations, showing you how to improve both your calculation and pattern recognition and transforming you into a master tactician. Nigel reveals how rich, tactical positions are created and how to calculate the winning lines.

In this exclusive free preview, Nigel talks about attacking the king. Attack is one of the most important and vital areas of the game of chess. Without attacking, you will never checkmate your opponent or gain enough material advantage to claim a victory.

Tactics should not be underestimated. Sure, everyone tells players to practice tactics, tactics tactics, every day, but that is for good reason. Tactics alone can boost your Elo rating significantly, and in Nigel’s opinion is probably the most important and main way you can get better at the game – and he should know with a successful career as not only a player, but a coach as well!

In this video, Nigel analyses a game he played against Jonathan Penrose in the 1977 British Championship which shows that in order to play good tactics, you need to put your pieces on the best squares. For example, put your rooks on open or semi-open files. Tactics are easier to find when you bring all your available pieces into the attack!

Next, Nigel looks at a second game, this time his victory over Glenn Flear from the same British Championship – a game that further demonstrates how to look for attacking tactics when your pieces are well placed.
